FLOW dads get paternity leave
Fathers who work with telecommunications company F low will benefit from paid paternity leave. The company recently launched a new policy that will see fathers, whether biological or adoptive, getting eight weeks of paid leave.
The company currently offers 16 weeks of paid leave to birth mothers.
“Evolving our parental leave policy, quite simply, is the right thing to do,” said Kerry Scott, chief people officer for Liberty Latin America, of which F low is a part.
“We recognise that diversity drives success and family dynamics and structures have changed. Our new policy demonstrates our commitment to a culture of diversity and inclusion and one that puts our people at the heart of our success.”
Stephen Price, country manager for F low, described the initiative as transformational.
“This is a defining moment for our entire Jamaica family. The conventional family construct has evolved, and as a progressive employer, we are ensuring that we further support our team members and help to facilitate these moments that matter for them and their families,” he said.
“The initial months are critical, and having your partner with you makes a world of difference. Our families provide balance and support daily, and this policy further underscores who we are as an employer and the commitment we are making to our team members and the well-being of their families,” Price added.
